After 30 years of Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones witnessing the Philadelphia Eagles not winning the Super Bowl, he finally got to witness it this year. Which happens to be the year his team, the Dallas Cowboys, didn’t even make it to the playoffs after not being able to defeat the Seattle Seahawks to clinch it.
“Well, Philadelphia had been trying to win a Super Bowl the 30 years I’d been in the NFL and got it this year. Not two [years]. So, they’ve been trying a long time to win a Super Bowl and other teams have, too. So, it wasn’t just a two-year run for them to go to the Super Bowl.”
Well, apparently Jerry Jones doesn’t think the gap is that big between the Eagles and Cowboys roster talent either.
“I think that if the gap is defined as them winning the Super Bowl and [us] not even getting in the playoffs, then we’ve got to close the gap,” Jones said. “I think that we should’ve been in the playoffs. We weren’t. But I don’t believe that us not being in the playoffs this past year is the size of the gap.”
“I’d like to think that Philly closed the deal of where we had an opportunity to do it the year before.”
Doesn’t make much sense, maybe Jerry Jones is still just mourning the Eagles’ victory over the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, while he has to sit and watch his team not even make it to the Super Bowl for over 20 years, and only winning two playoff games. Sorry Jerry. But hey, who said all billionaires are smart?
